May 30, 1939 April 27, 2017
There are condolences waiting approval on ALLAN's Tribute wall
On the evening of April 27, 2017, God called one of his children, Allan Daniel Brown, to his place of rest. Born on May 30, 1939, Allan was the second of eight children born to the late Daniel and Octavia Brown.

Allan was a native of Calvert County and lived there his entire life. He attended the public schools of Calvert County and graduated from Brooks High School in 1957.

On September 12, 1958, Allan married the love of his life, Cleo Gray. From this blissful marriage, three were born; Monica, Allan (Tony) and Larry.

In 1975, Allan gave his life to the Lord and joined Young's United Methodist Church. While attending Young's UMC he was active as the Chairman of the Administrative Board, Chairman of Trustees, Chairman of Finance and a Lay Leader. After Young's church was dissolved, Allan and his family became members of Patuxent United Methodist Church. At Patuxent Allan continue to serve in many capacities such as Lay Leader, Member of the Ministerial Team and Scholarship Committee
and member of the Patuxent Male Chorus. He was also the coordinator and secretary of the “Christian Men on the Move", and was appointed Chairman of the Huntingtown Charge Trustees serving eight years. He was responsible for the children's service on Sunday mornings and shared responsibility of presiding over the morning service and over the testimonial services. He will be long remembered as a faithful servant used by God.

After graduating from high school, Allan worked as a Shop Stewart and a Timekeeper for Standard Construction Company for nine years. While working he attended Phelps Vocation School for masonry work and took night classes at McKinley Vocational School for carpentry.

In 1966, Allan was employed by the A.B.& W Transit Company in Virginia as a driver. When the Virginia, Maryland and District of Columbia's transit authorities merged into Washington Metro Area Transit Authority (WMATA); Allan received an appointment as a Utility Supervisor. This was a position not previously held by a minority and required that he learned all the supervisory jobs at WMATA.

Three years later, Allan was appointed as a Communication Specialist; and this too was a position not previously held by a minority in WMATA. Three years after this appointment, Allan became the Training Instructor for WMATA, a job he held until retirement of forty-four years of employment with WMATA. In his memoirs Alan stated; “After retirement it was great to be able to go to bible study and to do the homework assignment together with my wife.”

Allan enjoyed many hobbies, basketball, table tennis, pool and most of all forty years of playing tennis. He played tennis for most of those years with the United State Tennis Association Senior League.

As Allan reflected on his life in his most recent memoirs, he leaves these words for us to remember, «The Joy ef my life is having God in my life, my wondeiful wife, my Jamifu my church famifu and many wondeiful friends who have shown me that I was loved. Whenever God calls my number, I can honestly sqy that He has been very good to me.”

Allan was preceded in death by: his son Larry D. Brown; brothers, Larry Edward Brown and Stephen Brown; special friends MacArthur Jones and Russell Reid.
